Our Assessment: This rifle has obviously been rebarreled or rechambered, and the gun is now all about the caliber... "The .17 Remington was introduced in 1971 by Remington Arms Company for their model 700 rifles. It is based on the .223 Remington, necked down to .172in (4.37 mm), with the shoulder moved back. It was designed exclusively as a varmint round, though it is suitable for smaller predators. There are those such as P.O. Ackley who used it on much larger game, but such use is typically not recommended. Extremely high initial velocity (over 4000 ft/s 1200 m/s), flat trajectory and very low recoil are the .17 Remington's primary attributes. It has a maximum effective range of about 500 yards (460 m) on prairie dog-sized animals, but the small bullets' poor ballistic coefficients and sectional densities mean they are highly susceptible to crosswinds at such distances."
